    Hi All,

    Have just got a new android mobile, which on start-up has invited me to open a MacAfee application. Do mobiles need anti-virus software and, if so, which is best?

    Thank you all in advance and may I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

    Don’t bother. The people who’d have you believe you need AV are largely people selling AV.

    iPhone owners will be along shortly to tell you about all the viruses on Android and its inherent lack of security. Ignore them.

    I’ve had my HTC desire 18 months now and have just had my first brush with a dodgy app. It was downloaded from the market place about 6 months ago and, after a recent update, started spamming my contacts with phishing emails.
